an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state.

. unlocking the world's potential. gerri: if you are looking for the next government bailout beneficiary, look no further than the national flood insurance program. that is right. the federal program operating by fema, we have talked about this week. the program already owes $18 billion in taxpayers dollars, much of it was unpaid hurricane katrina battered 2005. only a government program could get away with not paying its bills for seven years, but there you have it. and the wheels keep turning. hurricane sandy will put a new twist on insurance taxpayer dollars. according to "the wall street journal" and the, flood program covers more than 236,000 policies. $54.5 billion. if they exceed their borrowing cap, then they have to ask congress for more money and likely, you bet it is. it encourages building in risky areas. until recently, the government did not care where their customers will be housed in a hurricane zone area. only to see them. only to get blown out in the next one. some people rebuild with federal dollars over and over and over again. today, there are some restrictions on the kind
to handle a crisis like hurricane sandy, some say proof big government is the only solution, but is that true? i will break that down next. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation p powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prtate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse co spiriva helps me breathe better.

't drive and for many, there's still no power. it is getting ugly. government doesn't look so good. to the polls, who is going to win? depends who you ask and it dehe pends who gets out and votes. minutes from now, the first friday morning poll, we will bring you the rasmussen numbers. jobs, gas, votes. "varney & company" is about to begin. >> right to the big story, which is the october jobs report. the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%. 171,000 jobs were created last month. and the real unemployment rate, which tallies those unemployed and underemployed fell ever so slightly, but holding at 14.6%, the economy is not creating enough new jobs to brighten the employment picture. three years after the recession ended we should be creating at least 250,000 new jobs a month. we are not. the economy remains weak, despite record government spending and an extra 5 1/2 trillion dollars worth of debt. aust austan goolsbee will be joining us, he helped to write the policies,'s no longer with the administration, he hasn't been here for a while, but returning today. here is how it went last time
the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i think there are going to be a lot of doubts and frustrations in terms of what exactly is going to happen here soon because it's going to take a while. obviously it's going to take a while. andrea? >> ron a

the idea of an expansive activist federal government -- that's obama, of course -- and a minimal, smaller, shrinking federal government, that's mitt romney. so for all the talk of bipartisanship we've heard in the last two weeks from both candidates, there's not a lot of bipartisanship out there. >> when you speak to republican voters, you've been out around the country a lot, there is a real sense that they are very angry with what's this president has done to the country in terms of expanding government. do democrats feel the same about what mitt romney would do if he were president? >> they do, although in a sense it's a bit below the surface, since they're not experiencing it right now. but we have a similar experience under george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we
rate is worse than the national average making the case for continuing a strong government role. >> today there are thousands of workers building long lasting batteries and solar technology and wind turbines all across the country. jobs that weren't there four years ago. >> mitt romney meantime in virginia where the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. he ridiculed the president for his plan to create a new cabinet position a secretary of business. >> i don't think what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something abouton creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president who understands job creation. >>> the new unemployment numbers come out in about 3 and a half hours. they expect 121,000 jobs created last month if that's the case. that is lower than the monthly aying we have seen so far this year. >>> thank you very much, doug, we appreciate it. >> there are new details about the benghazi terror attack including claims that the state department decided not to send a rapid response team. peter doocy is live with that story. >
opportunists who will try to take advantage of instability and destabilizing influence and nascent governments or failing governments. and these opportunists are maybe unpredictable. and i always use iraq as an example. there's lots of opportunists in iraq. iran, turkey, saudi arabia, kuwait, nonstate actors. all opportunists trying to take advantage of a situation. how does that project itself around the world? what does that mean to us as we look at the future of conflict? the cast of conflict is changing, the operational environment and conflict is changing, but in my mind the fundamental nigh ture of war remains the same. that's the struggle to influence populations and governments. that has not changed. so it's how we continue to understand that struggle within the new operational environment and context that we see it. the army was created 237 years ago to defend this great nation and in my opinion that imperative has not changed. so as i adapt the force for foot ture, the one thing i tell everyone is that we are starting from a position of strength. why do i say that? because the army s
been bottlenecked. >> earlier today the federal government waived a allow that prevents foreign ships from carrying fuel between u.s. ports. that should help. but the white house said there is been no decision whether to release oil from strategic reserves. johnathan hunt is live bay bridge, brooklyn tonight. if the tankers are on the way, how long until the fuel gets to the people who need? >> it's still going to be some time. whatever officials say about the help being on the way. the problem here is that new york harbor where i'm standing right now has been closed for the very good reason that they were very worried about the sort of debris that might be in the waters and might pose a threat to the shipping. but now you have the tankers that are waiting outside the harbor. first of all, you have to get the barges to them, then you have to go through the long process of pumping all the gas and oil from the tankers to the barges. then they have to get back in here to the terminals. but nonetheless, governor cuomo of new york said nobody panic, help is coming. listen. >> there is no r

by in case the state government asks for them help. and now, picking up the pieces from sandy. staten island is a 60 square mile portion of new york city and it suffered some of the worst devastation from the storm. 19 of the city's deaths happened on staten island and today, i toured some of the hardest hit areas and spoke with residents just beginning to pick up the piecing of their shattered lives. this is quincy avenue and you still can't get close to house number 845. that's where barbara and her son, christopher, barely survived the storm. >> we stayed 11 hour onss on the roof. we kept yelling help to everyone we see. nobody was coming. nobody. >> their neighborhood, destroyed. the water rose feet in just minutes. they escaped with their lives, but suffered unimaginable loss. >> we were told the next day, looking for my sister, she was found dead in her apartment -- we have to get her from brooklyn and try to bury her. >> at the shelter, we saw about 250 people with no place to go and there are others still unaccounted for. congressman michael grim represents all of staten island. we w

brewing and congressman charlie rangel on the government's stormy response to sandy. and how it reverberates, first the latest for you on what is going on. forget the dollars, the sandy thing is turning dire, very dire. over 100 dead and the count expected to go higher as rescue workers reach the flooded homes and, mayor bloomberg predicting more bodies will be found and president obama holding a conference call with the governors of new york, new jersey and connecticut. and, that '70s show in the garden state all over again. new jersey governor chris christie ordering odd-even gas rationing, to help ease incredibly long lines at the pump and license plates ending in odd numbers fill up on odd days and even numbers on even days, the changes go into effect less than two hours from now in 12 new jersey counties. and, governor mitt romney wrapping up an event in battle ground state of new jersey, louisiana governor bobby jindal traveling with him, and we'll talk to the governor in a few moments, and, staten island and the storm after the storm. those escaping death now, pleading
waiting to get in. that's good news. a couple developments here. the state and federal government authorities have signed an executive order that weighs state requirements fuel tankers register and pay a tax before unloading, that's supposed to expedite things and the obama administration has issued a temporary blanket waiver on the jones act which will allow additional oil tankers coming from the gulf of mexico to enter the ports up here. recall this was a big deal during katrina. the jones act requires all vessels carrying products between u.s. ports to fly under the u.s. flag, be built in the u.s., and be crude mostly be u.s. citizens the fact they're waiving that will hopefully expedite more fuel in here. what are they doing on the ground? trying to get the power to restored to gas stations that don't have power. you can't pump gas if you don't have power. power is restored to the terminals to get the fuel, of course, on to the trucks. that's a priority. now, there are trucks moving and there is gas here. the issue are those other two issues really kind of slowing things down
